Where to begin. Life has been getting a little busier these past few months. We were given an amazing opportunity to go overseas for a few years … and we grabbed it with both hands! It was an interesting experience, neither of us hesitated in saying lets go for it and we didn’t think twice about leaving our lovely home for a while.
It’s exciting and scary and I would be lying if I said I haven’t had heebeejeebee moments like ‘What if the kids don’t settle ‘ or ‘what if I hate it’ or ‘ what food will I be able to buy in the supermarket’ but for the most part I can’t wait to have a big adventure as a family. Making memories together, learning new things and opening the children’s minds is what excites me the most.
If I am completely honest, I thought my travelling days were well and truly locked in a suitcase under the bed … there was definately a little spark reignited at the thought of unleashing the wanderlust again 🙂
Overall I feel grateful to be given the opportunity and it makes me appreciate what we have in our life here all the more. Gulp. It will be hard to say goodbye.
SO . Now that you are up to speed on what lies ahead … this is a pretty good idea of what the chalkboard in our kitchen has been like for the past few months … just when things get knocked off another 10 things are added . It’s been relentless … and that is just what’s been written down .My brain is like a washing machine drum full of ‘I musts’
The crazy part of it all is that we have been finishing off lots of bits and pieces around the house and it is finally coming together. I feel like I am on the last mile of a marathon … gaining momentum only to press a pause button just before the finish.
so here’s a sneak peek at some of the befores in the children’s bedrooms upstairs
remember this from House Tour … the BEFORE!
Now One big room has become two rooms . This was very exciting for the kiddies to have their own rooms. It made the pain of all the dust easier to bear.
this was when the partition wall was being put up.
These are probably not the best pictures but the rooms are more spacious than they seem here. When the rooms are tidy enough I will post the afters .. heehee … I promise it won’t be too long … our clock is ticking!!
That’s my lot for today … I hope you are making progress with any projects in your homey homes … or planning a big adventure … please feel free to tell all in the comments below!
ciao for now.
